Self-referentialism

Self-referentialism (similar to existentialism): the depressing condition within Internet-based research where you repeatedly (only?) find your own work. Following is a semi-example where 9 people on the Del.icio.us have noted the same article about LiquidSoap. The "just posted" indicator is an indication of my having saved the link. The picture indicates that I then Googled for the term and was brought back to Del.icio.us. (Arg!!)


(heh) Cutting edge does have its drawbacks...
